Reflection Criterion B Strand iv. Reflect on the process and results of the investigation.

So first I pick my system (Transportation system) and I pick three innovation which was car, train and
airplane. Then I research deep into the three innovation and find the connection between the other
system and transportation system. Next, I will pick one modern innovation and imagine what will
happen to this modern innovation in the future. Last, I will put everything in the slide and site my
sources. I think the result was going great because I accomplish my goal by finishing my summative
and be able to explain my research question clearly. I think that I could improve my summative next
time by research more because I feel like I need more information.
